Training Recommendations for Microsoft Office

Hello, As I am transitioning into the HR Field, I'm seeing a lot of job postings looking for experience with Microsoft Office. While Job searching, I'm wondering if anyone can recommend some basic level Microsoft Trainings/Certifications that I can complete to boost my resume credentials?

  • I believe you can sign up for a free trial with LinkedIn Learning. I believe they do have some certifications but it primarily focuses on learning the basics of each product and then more advanced courses. Most employers will want to know that you are familiar with products but wouldn't necessarily require that you be certified in one Microsoft product to be excluded from an HR person. Most MS products are user-friendly and easy to learn once on the job. If LinkedIn Learning no longer offers a free trial, YouTube also offers more than enough videos on the products. If I'm ever a situation where I am trying to learn a task in an MS product for the first time, I normally use YouTube or Linkedin Learning vs. internal IT support.

    I took a training years ago through my library digital online system... digital class for free.  The educator was amazing.  You had tasks to do but there weren't grades.  Wasn't fluff and you received real experience working the program.
